CLEAR CREEK COUNTY, Colo. (WLFI/WISH) – A man considered a person of interest in the Delphi double homicide will be returning to Indiana.
According to online court records, Daniel Nations, 32, was in court in Colorado’s Clear Creek County on Wednesday where he agreed to return to Indiana to face a charge in Johnson County.
Authorities in Johnson County accused Nations in September 2017 of failing to register as a sex offender.
An arrest warrant was issued around the same time Indiana State Police investigators traveled to Colorado to interview Nations. The warrant is not related to the murders Abby Williams and Libby German.
Police had arrested Nations, accusing him of threatening people with a hatchet while on a Monument, Colorado hiking trail. Indiana investigators were contacted while Nations was in custody for that case.
The arrest and release of Nations’ mugshot prompted many social media users to speculate and draw similarities between Nations and a sketch drawn of a possible suspect in the Delphi homicides.
After interviewing him, Indiana State Police told our CBS affiliate WISH-TV that nothing specifically developed to include or exclude Nations as a suspect in the Delphi homicides.
Court documents did not include a date by when Nations would be extradited to Indiana.
